PORTHALLOW VILLAGE ASSOCIATION  Regd. Charity No: 1118168

Porthallow is the half way point of the South West Coastpath (Minehead to Poole).  The village has a fine marker on the beach commissioned by the SWCPA and the PVA.  The beach itself is comprised of a variety of rocks including Hornblende-schist, red and green serpentines, pillow lava, slate, sandstone, gabbro and granite.  There are very pleasant walks in all directions and from the coastpath there are fabulous views across Falmouth Bay to St Mawes and beyond.  The valley footpath in spring is a riot of colour when the bluebells are in flower.  Whilst walking it is possible to see one or all of the following: Buzzards, goldfinches, woodpeckers, cormorants, shags, oyster catchers, various gulls, heron, egret, swans, seals, basking sharks and dolphins gabbro
